I am sure you can tell by my previous posts on this thread that I am no fan of AJ. And I'm not trying to rub anybody up the wrong way.
I'm also no fan of anybody, that's all fine...
What I cannot understand about AJ's fans or people who commend the man is this: he has been proven a liar
Sorry, I probably missed something... Could you elaborate more on this one?
Yes a lot of his material is spot on, but that means nothing if he is prepared to lie and twist things, infact it is all the more a case to raise
suspicions concerning his credibility.
I've listened to AJ on and off for years and there always comes a point when I find him to be dishonest. To me this is inexcusable, and that
is what I don't get when it comes to his fans.
To have an opinion is one thing, the other thing are the 300 + bashing threads about AJ with ZERO CONTENT and NO SOLID EXAMPLES about the perceived
Why people love so much to target individuals in a so personal matter without the need to, at least, substantiate any of this claims it's beyond
me... Don't we have any relevant ISSUES to discuss? AJ gives us plenty. Why not use one of them to better illustrate your view?
Yeah, I'd like to have something more solid to discuss than this "celebrity style" contest we are used here on the ATS site...
It annoys me a lot to see the huge waste of time people spend bashing the few voices that touch upon the really sensitive themes of our times.
Everyone can be wrong from time to time, everyone needs (and want) money, everyone misses or can misinterpret something... That's all fine.
But, it is all irrelevant on the long run.
We still need the ISSUES on the table to move forward and avoid this TROLL FESTIVAL here.
ATS is becoming a 100% waste of Bandwidth, Keyboard and human character...
Sorry folks, if we don't go for the ISSUES, which include people like AJ but ARE NOT MADE of it, this forum will be reduced to just a positive or
negative personality cult debate forum that does not get anybody anywhere.
It is getting worse than a pub full of Red Skins and Boston Socks fans talking about who has the best team in the Baseball league (or something like
that if you understand what I mean).
In short, AJ is just a messenger with a MESSAGE and AJ's opinions about the MESSAGE...
Pay attention to the MESSAGE and give your take about it! Feel free to give your take on the take of the messenger (in these case on AJ), but the
FOCUS is still on the MESSAGE.
Come on people, why is that so difficult to understand something that simple? It applies to everyone and any news medium out there.
Troll is also a behavior pattern!
